Cooper's pic

I was asked to post Cooper's picture in this forum so you could take a crack at him:

Age:
11 Months

Weight:
about 130 to 140 pounds and still growing

Disposition:
Sweetheart

Drooling:
none except for after drinking.
And he knows to come and have his mouth cleaned.

A sketchy smudge.

Hey Frank. Hope you like this one. I basically did some old fashion mouse smudging of your pooch and simplified the background with Impressionist. I also applied Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast (actually did this step before Impressionist). The full rez version (around 800K) is here. The lower quality small version is attached.

Cooper

Thank you Frank for posting Cooper he sure does look like a sweety but i don't think i would like his food bill, or have to mop up his footprints

I couldn't resist having a go at a smudge painting, all though i think i will have a go using the ahb over the weekend.
I hope Cooper approves

What brush are you using Palms?

I really like this style of brushing (seen it before), but the closest I've been able to duplicate it is the dry brush. Please let me know.
